Rainy Day Math

It has rained in Northern Louisiana for about two weeks now. But is has forced us inside to snuggle and it has given us lots of time to study and learn. :)

Can I go back in time and have my mother homeschool me? She said she would if she had it to do over again! *sigh*

I was happy to discover your blog today. I was unable to find a contact link. I hope it's OK that I'm contacting you through a public comment. I've developed an educational program for Windows called SpellQuizzer that helps children learn their spelling and vocabulary words without the battle that parents often have getting them to sit down and write them out while the parents dictate to them. The parent enters the child's spelling words into the software making a sound recording of each word. Then the software helps the child practice his or her words. It really helped my children with their weekly spelling lists.

I would appreciate your reviewing SpellQuizzer in Shady Bayou Academy. If you are interested in hosting a giveaway of a SpellQuizzer license I'd be happy to supply a free license to the winner. You can learn more about the program at http://www.SpellQuizzer.com. There's a video demo you can watch at http://www.spellquizzer.com/SpellQuizzer-Demo.htm and a community site where SpellQuizzer users can share their spelling lists with one another (http://www.SpellQuizzer.com/Community). Finally, there's a page targeted to homeschooling families at http://www.spellquizzer.com/spelling-software-for-homeschoolers.htm. I'd be happy to send you a complimentary license for the software. Please let me know if you are interested.

Thank you very much!

Even though I enjoyed my ps years, I would have loved to be homeschooled. My mom is very supportive in my choice to homeschool. She has told me more than once that if she knew that she could have done it she would have, but had no idea that it even existed at the time.

Love the flexibility in homeschooling!! We OFTEN school in more, well, non-traditional ways... :-)

Reminds me of the tent Sierra built when I was in the middle of building my bookcases! Fun!

Thank you for your comments!

Peace and Laughter,

That is wonderful! I have a friend that asks me all the time if we can go back 20-30 years and then I can homeschool HER! :)
There was no such thing as homeschooling when I was a kid - it just wasn't an option. I'm so glad that things have changed and that it's available to people now.

Hi, I'm missing your posts... hoping you are well! Maybe you decided to put new comments only on Sunday, could that be?
bye
